firearm you ever owned?

Mine was a new out of the box Vector Arms UZI. Had major cycling problems. Come to find out there was a run that were made with something askew and the company was standup about it and paid to ship and fix any that were faulty. Unfortunately by that time I wasn't very impressed with it anyway so I just returned it, and bought a brand new SOCOM 16.

S&W Sigma SW9M, total POS.

Kel-Tec P-11, couldn't hit anything further than 10 feet away, and had to stand on the trigger to get it to fire, it was something like a 14 lb trigger pull....traded it in for a Ruger P345 and couldn't have been happier

Taurus PT58s. Horrid trigger. Huge for a .380. POS.

Ruger Mini-30.

Couldn't feed from a magazine to save it's miserable life.

Remington 522 Viper



All plastic internal parts and always jams up... everytime a hot shell gets stuck in the ejection port in melts its way in the plastic.. WTF?

A Ruger 10/22 it is NOT.

1985ish Ruger Tang safety M77 in .270 Win. It would misfire on the first round when cold about 25% of the time. I missed 2 whitetail bucks because of it. 3 "gunsmiths" said they had it fixed & same problem kept happening. I finally sold it to a guy for $250.00 after I told him of the problem. Looking back I think it was too much headspace and I could have just reloaded for it and fixed the problem.... It is the ONLY gun I've ever sold.

whoops. I didn't read the thread right.

Charles Day 1911. Part of the recoil spring retainer plug broke after 50rds, jammed the slide good and hard. I finally got it apart, the retainer plug looked like it was made by cro-magnons with stone axes.

They did, however, refund my $$, which I put toward a 6" GP100!

Bushamaster M17 Bullpup. Biggest POS ever.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 3:08:13 PM EDT
brand new S&W 686 .357 with 8 3/8 barrell
REVOLVER.... biggest POS I ever owned!!
From the first shot the spent shells would stick in the Cylinder & you had to smack the gun on the shooting table to hammer them out!!! When I took it in I was asked if I had the recall done. I don't remember what the recall was but it was off to S & W... Trigger problem??
Got the gun back ok, but double action trigger was DANGEROUS, I swear a couple of times it fired before I touched the trigger!! Unloaded I could cock the hammer & rap my knuckles on the handgrip & the hammer would fall!!!
Back to the gunshop, the owner (The Powder Room, Dublin, Ohio) told me it was an easy fix & offered me full price trade in on another gun, without hesisatation I pointed at the 1911 I had been eyeballing for weeks & said "sold"
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 3:09:40 PM EDT
Would have to be my G19 that goes off by itself. You could shoot an eye out with that thing.

Sounds like grease or oil caked on the firing pin spring, but I've been wrong before.

I havent had a bad firearm yet, even the Mini 14 I had worked and shot good. I usually do alot of research before I buy though.

Walther P5C

Finding mags is a pain in the ass. Will not feed Reming Golden Saber. When new, trigger pull maxed out my 14lb scale....

Other than that, it's incredibly accurate for such a short barreled pistol.

Bolt was completely dissassembled and cleaned (not very dirty). When it still did it Ruger sent me (N/C) a new firing pin spring (felt MUCH stronger). Same problem. Firing pin protrusion checked out perfect. All of the misfires had a very light firing pin strike and would fire after another round was fired. All misfires were on first cold shot and Rem., Federal, and Hornady Custom ammo was affected. Drove me nuts. Never have had any other rifle misfire, before or since.... Just one o' those lemons.

eta - I do wish now I had it back because I've learned a lot since then and I'd whip that byotch into submission now!!

Remington 592
Followed by Remington 7400
and finally Walther P-22.

All three were POS's that I'm still angry about wasting money on.

Please elaborate on the Sako...

Hi Point carbine. I had a failure to feed, fire, extract and eject before making it through 100 rounds.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 6:05:34 PM EDT
Springfield M6. Unusable "trigger", terrible sights, non-existant ergonomics, slow to use. It was designed for a single purpose, and absolutely failed at that.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 6:09:02 PM EDT
thank god i never bought one, but my buddy has been saddled with it:

Taurus 24/7 9mm. Mushy trigger that ranges from 1/4 to over 1" of travel before bang

only feeds about 80% of the time for no apparent reason. It will extract/eject no problem, and just wont feed. The mag is seated fine as it feeds the rounds above, just not randomly selected ones.

I wouldnt wish that gun on someone shooting at me
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 6:11:28 PM EDT
Tec 9.
Mags didn't work, sights looked like they were welded on from a coat hangar.
Trigger felt like dragging a brick across a cobblestone street.

old mini-30 ranch with .308 bore. for some reason when you shoot mil surp or wolf it would blow the trigger group out. that and it couldnt hit the broad side of a barn.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 6:25:01 PM EDT
Walther P22. I still own it, but only because it is cheap as hell to shoot. Wouldn't use it for anything more than practice/plinking. If it needs to go bang, then it needs to be my P228.

Bersa .380. Trigger stopped engaging the rest of the FCG after 100 rounds.

I forgot about the Raven 25 ACP that someone gave me, I guess it counts cause I still have it. I havent had the balls to even shoot it, never mind being seen in public trying to sell it.
